How well I remember.  My wife and I went to see them live several times,
and on one occasion tossed up an item on the stage to be juggled, but it
wasn't chosen by the audience.  The two most challenging things I saw were
a pineapple (ouch) and a plastic bag of garbage (very unpredictable

If a chainsaw had been forthcoming, they would have accepted that challenge.

Not necessarily.  They always reserved the right to reject any item or to
modify it.  The bag of garbage had several things removed from it,
presumably to lighten it.
